In celebration of our 30th year we invite you to join us for “Open That Bottle Night” on Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Open That Bottle Night is an event originally created by Wall Street Journal wine columnists, Dorthy Gaiter and John Brecher, to give friends and family the reason to finally open that bottle that is otherwise simply too special to drink.

The Fess Parker Winery Barrel Room will be transformed into a grand party venue complete with a delicious dinner of refined ranch cuisine from Chef John Cox of The Bear and Star restaurant, a dedicated sommelier for each table and, of course, plenty of Library selections celebrating our 30 year anniversary.

As the evening progresses, you're encouraged to break out a bottle of your own and enjoy tastes from our library of wines. The evening will be dedicated to celebrating good wine and making new memories together.

Limited to 80 guests ~ Tickets are $125 per person ~ $100 for Wine Club Members (limit 2 tickets per membership)
